  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Black-teal-white would be the most ideal and best-looking combo in this set, but I also think it’s unfortunately going to be the least worn, if ever. I’d be floored if they wore it once this coming season.
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    That font makes things a little more interesting than in the previous mockups, so at least there’s that. And the helmet’s a win. But like I said previously, these really lack character and charm. I see what they were trying to do - a simple, classic look - but that’s just not the right route for them. They are in desperate need of something to give it some life, whether that be a touch of gold, a pants stripe, or even the full-body jaguar on the sleeve (in which case the chest logo would need to go). As it is, it’s lacking a bit too much and doesn’t have the history behind it to justify or empower such a plain look, unlike the Raiders or Alabama or Penn State.
  3. Great improvements. Addition by subtraction, indeed. I still loathe entirely the belly flop insurance agency dolphin, but at least the uniforms look great now.
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I didn’t even see it! Haha this thread’s blown up so fast. My bad!

    Looks like some signage let the cat out of the bag... https://www.news4jax.com/sports/nfl/jaguars/jaguars-new-uniforms-show-up-on-new-signage-at-jax-airport
  6. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    If these mockups are any indication, this is a very, very safe move. Almost too safe. They’re unfortunately missing a lot of character. I love classic, simple uniforms very much. I’ve voiced that numerous times. But what makes a lot of the great ones great (the Raiders or Alabama, for example) is that it’s been entrenched for years, associated with some sort of classic brand of football, and has years of history that empower that simplicity. It’s not, unfortunately, something you can just pull out of thin air and expect to have the same power. It looks like the Jaguars tried that, and it’s just not hitting the note for me like other, more established classic looks do. It comes across as lacking and devoid of charm. Not to beat a dead horse, but they really should have tried to replicate their 90’s look. That is the classic look they should have established. It’s too bad that they have apparently missed that chance.

    Daniel Vogelbach reminds me a lot of Kyle Schwarber. Dude’s got some power.
  8. MLB changes 2018?

    I’m still in shock as to how much the Tigers downgraded this past offseason. The enlarged “D” on the cap looks like a really bad knockoff and the cap “D” on the chest looks so awful. To me, they went from best look in the majors to...well, really not. Congrats on being the new best looking team in baseball, Toronto!
  9. Unpopular Opinions

    Nope, I assure you I’m fine. I just have a different opinion than you and that should be okay. Thanks for the concern though. Seriously though, in comparison to this goofy thing: ...Neil Diamond over here: ...This guy that’s irked at how poorly drawn he is: ...And a cap logo that’s good but lacking as a primary? ...I’ll take the ‘97 Pirate every single time.

    Best logo the Pirates have ever had:
  11. Trying a MLB Hockey Uniform Series

    That Blue Jays throwback is stunning. That works so well. The only two suggestions I have is to lose the phantom yoke piping on both of the Brewers’ blue sets, and maybe do the “P” or one of the old Pirate logos on the front of Pittsburgh’s instead of the wordmark and number. Other than that though, this is really good stuff.

  15. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    His passing is improving, so the assists and double-doubles will come. But he’s averaging 20 points a night, leads a playoff team in scoring, is 17th in plus-minus (and is like 2nd or 3rd since January), broke the rookie record for 3-pointers made, has 38 20-pt games, 4 30-pt games, and 2 40-pt games, and the rest of what makes up my belief that he’ll be a star has come only from being able to watch him day in and day out. He is literally leading the Jazz’s offense as a rookie and carries the weight of the offense on his shoulders. That’s something you can only observe if you watch him. He does a lot of remarkable things with the basketball and has a killer scoring sixth sense. All of this and yet he’s still getting better. Is he as complete a player as Ben Simmons? No, but he’s still a great player and has a bright future in his own right.
